Pearson's r was used to investigate the relationships between student perceptions of responsibility and independence in their learning, the impact of remote teaching on achievement of the learning goal, and student anxiety levels. Results showed that students agree on the outcome of remote teaching on their responsibilities and independence towards their learning (2.95±.91). In addition, students achieved their learning goals (2.80±.66). Moreover, 6.32% of the students reported not having had anxiety, while 31.12% had severe anxiety. Student's perceptions of responsibility and independence and learning goal achievement has a moredate positive correlation (r=0.699;p<0.001). Moreover, between students' anxiety level and their perceptions of responsibility and independence there was a weak positive correlation (r=.144;p<0.001) as well as learning goal achievement (r=.177;p<0.001). In conclusion, students' anxiety levels had a moderate effect on student perceptions of responsibility, independence, and goal achievement.
